Pest has been a bother since the time that man started living in caves and because it is has been around for a long time there has been many myths that have developed. It is time to dispel five of these myths!
#1 Bees only sting once.
While it is correct that Honey Bees only sting once, Wasp and Hornets do not work like that. Wasp and Hornets are very protective of their nest and will sting you multiple times to protect it. So, don’t make the assumption that the flying, stinging insect in front of you is a Honey Bee!
#2 Mice like cheese.
Cartoons have led you wrong! I know that Jerry is in love with cheese, but most mice are not like that! Mice have a bit of a sweet tooth! If you really want your trap to work, it is best to use peanut butter or dried fruit.
#3 If you are clean – you will not have pest.
You have the cleanest restaurant and you just saw a roach! HOW!? Roaches and pest do thrive in a cluttered, unkept environments but even if you are a neat pest can still get into your structure. Pest are looking for food, water and shelter and will find it any way they can!
#4 No pest seen means you do not have any problems.
